Old Greek Folk Stories Told Anew by J. P. Peabody
The little book of Old Greek Folk Stories, written in the late 1800's was written to supplement the myths told in Hawthorne's classics, the Wonder Book and Tanglewood Tales. It is shorter and simpler than Hawthorne's work and appropriate for younger children. Some of the characters it features incude Prometheus, who brought fire to to earth, Orpheus, the most talented of musicians, the cunning Daedalus who created the Labyrinth on Crete, Phaethon, Apollo, and many other well-known gods and heroes.
